- - Webcast of ICANN Roundtable - -

The Internet community is on the brink of holding a first-of-its-kind
global election. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers
(ICANN) will soon elect leaders to help direct its critical
responsibilities for the technical management of the Internet. This ICANN
At-Large election presents the Internet community with tremendously
important questions: Who will be represented in ICANN decision- making?
Will that decision-making reflect the global diversity of the Internet?
Will ICANN's decisions be made in the interest of those in the Internet
community who will be affected by them?

Common Cause and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), with
support from the Markle Foundation, are performing an independent study of
the ICANN At-Large elections process. Common Cause and CDT are convening
leaders from the Internet community, as well as experts from many
disciplines, to share opinions, ideas and expertise on how the public
interest can be served in this election process.

On February 9, as a part of this effort, a roundtable discussion will bring
together leading thinkers in the fields of voting, elections and democratic
process to discuss the upcoming ICANN At-Large election. For more
information, or to view the live webcast of the event, see:

- - Scott Harshbarger at the National Press Club - -

Common Cause President Scott Harshbarger will appear at
a "Morning Newsmaker" event:
Thursday, February 10, 2000
10:00 a.m.
National Press Club
14th and F Streets, Washington, DC

Harshbarger will talk about how money is shaping the 2000 elections, how
campaign finance reform has become one of this year's hottest election
issues, and the work ahead for Common Cause this year.

Harshbarger also will discuss the explosive growth of soft money this year
and how that money already is working its way into federal elections, and
the efforts of John McCain and Bill Bradley to make reform a cornerstone of
their campaigns. At the event, Common Cause will release the latest update
to its Reporter's Guide To Money In Politics, including the latest
political party soft money figures.
